Your Rock Bottom is Your Rock Solid Foundation to Rise with Lance W. Essihos

Everyone has that make or break moment.

That moment you either rise up or let life's choices and experiences consume you.

Lance Essihos chose to rise and there was no ceiling.  Experiencing lows is a normal part of life just as living through the highs.  Lance began his life in a loving home in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with loving parents and family who worked hard who gave him everything he needed and then more.  Life was good until it wasn't.

Lance had a passion for hockey.  He had been a star player who stood out with great talent; ahead of the other kids his age.  He played in all the top teams in world-class tournaments.  Slowly the competition caught up with him.  By the age of 20, the pressure led him to look for ways to stay competitive.  Steroids immediately ended his career and the devastation began.  That followed with dead-end jobs, drinking, drugs and partying into a state of depression and anxiety.  Lance continued the party across Europe and into Australia bar-tending in some of the best hotels and restaurants.  He discovered his love of people.  Socializing and taking care of them were part of his passion.  He was working hard all day, partying all night and still in a very dark place.

Life was a blur and he was spiraling out of control.  That's when he got the call.  The call that his younger brother had taken his own life and he was the one who had to tell his dad.  This was rock bottom with a destructive cycle continuing at a new low.  It's in these rock bottom moments that the choice occurs and Lance chose to rise.  He made some positive choices and get clean and sober.  This allowed him to be sharp and clear-headed perpetuating the positives.  He met Tamara who supported him in every way possible.  Encouraging him to live his best life.  He pulled himself up and started living the life he had dreamed of, the life he was meant to live.

Now, he's a positive influence on those who see adversity as a roadblock.  He started the University of Adversity Podcast to share, not only his story but stories just like his.  His hope is that when you are faced with a rock bottom choice you choose to rise as well.
